Publisher's Summary

An irreverent, hilarious insider's look at big-time NCAA basketball, through the eyes of the nation's most famous benchwarmer and author of the popular blog (3.6m visits!). Mark Titus holds the Ohio State record for career wins, and made it to the 2007 national championship game. You would think Titus would be all over the highlight reels. You'd be wrong.
In 2006, Mark Titus arrived on Ohio State's campus as a former high school basketball player who aspired to be an orthopedic surgeon. Somehow, he was added to the elite Buckeye basketball team, given a scholarship, and played alongside seven future NBA players on his way to setting the record for most individual career wins in Ohio State history. Think that's impressive? In four years, he scored a grand total of nine - yes, nine - points.
This book will give readers an uncensored and uproarious look inside an elite NCAA basketball program from Titus's unique perspective. In his four years at the end of the bench, Mark founded his wildly popular blog Club Trillion, became a hero to all guys picked last, and even got scouted by the Harlem Globetrotters. Mark Titus is not your average basketball star. This is a wild and completely true story of the most unlikely career in college basketball. A must-read for all fans of March Madness and college sports!


What the Critics Say

"Mark Titus knows a lot of personal secrets of mine. If he revealed any of them in this book, I will kick him right in the testicles. I’m not joking." (Greg Oden, #1 overall pick in 2007 NBA Draft, 2007 1st Team All-American)
“Of all the players I’ve coached in my career, Mark Titus is one of them.” (Thad Matta, head basketball coach at Ohio State)
“You want me to give you a quote? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. You’ve been riding my coattails for years, so of course you want to put my name on your book to sell more copies.” (Evan Turner, #2 overall pick in 2010 NBA Draft, 2010 college basketball National Player of The Year)

fun stories but no larger story

Great stories about OSU but this guy is probably a huge jerk in real life.

Hysterical in a juvenile way.

Great quick listen for NCAA tournament, particularly if you played HS or college hoops. Greg Oden and elevator stories may be familiar to some, but still funny. Caution, not for those sensitive to politically incorrect humor.
